New Report:  Gender Equality on the Ground: Feminist Findings and Recommendations for Achieving Agenda 2030

Source: WOMEN2030

This report is part of the WOMEN2030 programme that is funded by the European Commission and implemented by a coalition of Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF), Global Forest Coalition (GFC), Women Environmental Programme Africa (WEP), and Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) and many partners worldwide. Women2030 aims to strengthen capacities of women’s rights organizations to advance local, national and regional gender-responsive sustainable development policies. Building on Agenda 2030 and climate agreements, participation in policy development, monitoring, mobilizing citizens’ support and demonstrating best practices are core activities of this programme.

Recognizing the diversity in country reports in terms of focus and data availability, the report highlights key feminist priorities, progress and structural barriers across countries, as well as best practices and opportunities for change. The findings from the shadow reports were complemented with additional desk research and consultation with Women2030 coalition partners, including appraisal of recent trends such as COVID-19. A systemic, feminist and intersectional lens has helped to analyse systemic barriers and dynamics of power, inclusion and exclusion that are crucial to address when working to achieve the SDGs – and SDG 5 in particular.
